Course Description:
Aqueous Process Simulation
Water chemistry plays an important role in many chemical processes and businesses. The simple dissolution of salt or baking soda into water becomes very complex when simulations are developed. This session will provide an overview of electrolyte chemistry and the steps necessary to develop a predictive simulation model. We will address basic electrolyte chemistry, the significance of pH, vapor-liquid equilibrium and solid-liquid equilibrium. This session will not make you an expert in electrolyte chemistry but should equip you with the knowledge to ask the right questions when confronted with a problem.
